I may just be wrong here, as most respondents seem to come from colder climates, so it may actually make a big difference, but is it really worth all the trouble?! How long does its life span get extended?

if you do it while you're waiting your food to cook/or taking a bath/shower, yes for sure. or while you make tea, and the water is boiling.
togey: it's not wrong, but best is to take them out of the tubes, and roll just the feather part on the steam. that way you won't ruin the cork.

Here's what ppl do here.I guess what he did was rite.That can be done as
Since not all of us have a humidifier,then i suggest a more user-friendly way.Ppl here,they boil a kettle of water n use the steam to humidify the shuttles.They open the bottom n steam it.But keeps the top shuts.Otherwise the steam will go out as soon as it puts inside.The steaming progress is about 1 minute to 2 minutes top.Dont steam it too long,cos u're not cooking it.Then,after u're done,close the top.Do it at least an hour or 2 before u play.A night before is the best.
Dip it into a water bowl or just splash it just before u play is not a good way.I've used that method few times already..but it wont work.It'll only work if u keep it wet for at least a few hours before u play.U have to let the water be absorbed into the feathers,instead of just wetting it.If u're just wetting it,then the water will be gone after few hits.
I prefer the steaming one.It works best.
